LG LS970 (codename G) for Sprint to be called Eclipse 4G LTE, ship with quad-core Qualcomm CPU
The LG LS970 will be a beast. One of the highest-spec smartphones of all time, if not the highest-spec. That’s great news for Sprint customers (or those who’d like to become that in the future).
The LG LS970 first got leaked a couple of days ago, when we also heard that it could end up being called LG G. That sounded too good to be true (in a world dominated by increasingly long smartphone names), and it turns out it was. The LS970 will probably be sold as the LG Eclipse 4G LTE, so ‘G’ was just a codename after all.
Now some new info was leaked to BriefMobile, alongside the image you see above. Apparently, the new LG Eclipse will come with a quad-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU based on the Krait 28 nm architecture, together with an Adreno 320 GPU. That’s almost certainly going to be the most powerful mobile chipset in the world when it launches (since Qualcomm’s dual-core Krait CPUs are already pretty close to Nvidia’s Tegra 3 in terms of performance, yet with older graphics).
The Eclipse 4G LTE will also have 16 GB of built-in storage space, 2 GB of RAM, a 4.67-inch 1280×768 touchscreen, a 13 MP camera, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, and a 2,100 mAh battery. It will be just 8.6 mm thick and will obviously have 4G LTE connectivity (hence the name).
The LG Eclipse 4G LTE will arrive at Sprint sometime during the fourth quarter of this year. So it may make a very good holiday gift.
